Pick up 2 stitches from the both sides.

In order to avoid holes while picking (2 stitches from the right and 2 stitches from the left) try to twist them.

Redistribute stiches to make 4 on each needle, attach yarn at inside and purl until your finger measures 3-4cm. Finish off finger. Weave in ends.

Repeat knitting pattern for the left mitten.

Now we have a real set hat and warmers. I am so excited and ready for winter.
